Black Dunkman Nike Air Max LeBron VII (7) First Close Up »

Jan 2, 2010 at 11:33 am | lebron-viishoes

There are some shoes that need no introduction. When you’re thinking LeBron James shoes… the Dunkman theme seems to be the most significant since it’s inspired by LBJ’s first slam dunk in the NBA. Even without any good photographs, the Black/Alt Green aka Black Dunkman AMLVII has been voted the second best colorway in our current AMLVII poll. Featuring a Mean Green outsole with a big Dunkman logo (similar to the ZLIV PE), a Patent Leather upper and 3M laces… the Dunkman Air Max LeBron VII is scheduled to drop in March. UPDATE Message from Jason Petrie about the change of the color for the Dunkman theme (via SC):

Sometimes you just gotta change the status quo guys… We were tired of grey/green, it was time for a fresh take!!! haha the dunkman is about the green, not the gray, and the story and reason behind using black made much more sense than just using gray for the sake of it being a real “dunkman” colorway… dunkman is about an attitude, the gray may be back at some point, but now is your chance to own something that is different from every other lebron shoe… And once you hear the story of why the shoe is black, you will see that grey would have made no sense… be happy you even got a dunkman color at all, it was a fight to get them in the line!

    Ok, I NEED these in my life but if they are going to be a limited release (= BIG $$$) I’m going to jump on the black/green-spark Penny 1/2 cents. SO, am I out of luck thinking about scoring these or are they going to be a little more widely available (at least on NDC)??? :?:

  • In short words… they’re hot. I think I would have preffered a non Patent Leather version, but still… they look nice. I am hoping for another version though… something utilizing Gun Metal Grey perhaps.

    wow! have to wait for this one. i agree with Kaczala,the VII’s would be nice in a gun metal colorway.could we have more pictures of these with different angles?

  • Rich

    I wouldnt be surprised if the color on these do change. This exact colorway has been on the internet for awhile. I have seen some fakes with gunmetal meangreen and white. They were wayy better. Im still mad there was no dunkman VI’s. Those would have been awesome.

    Petrie’s quote does NOT excite me :sad: Makes me think he’s really saying, “limited limited limited release” ;-) That black and green is the hottest combo yet so so simple :shock:

  • jr_lyon

    Hopefully they are at least as available as the “Christmas” edition

  • I think they will be broadly available. Seems like it’s a GR colorway… I know seeing the Dunkman makes you think it’s limited, but from what JP is saying they want to sell them. The worst case scenario… they will drop is similar numbers to the Red Carpet and Christmas VII’s, which were not that hard to find, IMHO.

    Still I am a DIE HARD “Gun Metal Grey” fan so for me the Dunkman means not only the Mean Green. Nevertheless the Dunkman VII’s are hot and will be copped.

    I like these but I would rather have them release the hwc orange/blue lebron 7’s.

    Awesome!
